Dr. Braverman,

I have stage II endo and factor v Liden single mutation and I have tried 3 IUI cycles where HCG injection was used with two of them to trigger ovulation. I developed a skin reaction at the injection site similar to my allergic responses I have with other allergies. I am highly allergic to almost everything except food.

Is this reaction significant to determine any immune related problem with implantation?

Thanks,
Marci

yes it could , you can be tested for the cells most likely responsible and this can be treated. It is more significatn when associated with RPL or failed IVF cycles. I can work this up for you, feel free to call my office to schedule a consultation.

Dr. Braverman,

Thank you so much for the quick response! I live in South Carolina and have had my IUI's done at the fertility clinic here in Charleston. After our third failure I asked about immune related issues and the Dr told me there were not valid tests available and I found you on some of the fertility boards. Do you know of an RE in the SouthEast that your work with well? How soon could I get a consult with you? We want to identify my immune issues before we spend the money on IVF.

THANK YOU!
Marci
